This was taken a few minutes earlier than the shots I posted last night: completely different light, and a lot more of it. This is the new Daniel Liebeskind-designed Denver Art Museum extension. In the upper left corner is the Colorado State Capitol, with its dome under wraps for renovations.

Interesting color scheme! The birds in my squadron were "aircraft grey".
Most had no rear seats so if you had a 3rd passenger (me), sitting on a duffel bag and hugging the avionics/radio column was the approved seating

Dan, was "Paris of the Orient" Saigon? I was at Tan Son Nhut from July '66 to July '67... a Viet Nam Air Force Skyraider went down, doing an airshow I was told, a couple hundred yards from the trailer I was working in.

Yea I think I miss-applied that title!
I spent most of my tour in II Corp. Some time in field, Ban me Thout, but mainly at Nha Trang or Cam Ranh Bay. The furthest south I got was Phan Rang

Nice work Steve. A good study in what a difference a half an hour can make.

Jay and I are having dinner tomorrow; we'll be sure and raise a glass to absent friends...



Thanks Zim. You two will be able to get into enough trouble without my help. Better alert security, we shouldn't have that much talent in the same spot and the same time.

My thanks as well, and my blessings go with you both.

Good luck to everyone going to ISAP! We'll await the stories and photos with bated breath.

Glenn, those are some super sweet images. Funny, I don't think I have ever said super sweet before, but then I just can't come up with anything better.

The famous old wooden roller coast, Twister at Elitch Gardens/Six Flags Denver.

The local folks might recognize the right seater as none other than big time airshow pilot Andrew Wright! The newest formation pilot in the machpointone arsenal.

Glenn, Andrew looks quite large in the Cirrus.

Hi Lady Jo:

Sorry I missed Kingsbury - sad to admit that I forgot completely about it! doh! Looks like some new stuff came in for it...

That's funny Wrei - the truth is, this could possibly be the first flight this Cirrus has ever had its rudder pedals pushed! Andrew had to slide up so far forward to get proper rudder authority he was all squished into the glareshield. Not to mention putting the Cirrus into the slightest slip whatsoever in either direction and it immediately starts venting fuel overboard like a die hard movie as seen here...guess there is no "formation" button on the autopilot!

Hey Stevez:
That roller coaster is super sweet dude! Really lends itself to the 3d effect.
